A statement collar can elevate any look. Lets look at a new kind of statement collar today; one in fabric, available in a number of ON POINT prints. This can be worn over a shirt or layered over a tee or sweater to add contrast, or a pattern mixing interest. Also, it can be worn on a bare neck, above a tank, cami, or sundress to add a fabulous style element.
The Statement Collar in Fabric!
LOOK CLOSELY AND YOU WILL NOTICE A GEOMETRIC PATTERN WITH MY POLKA DOT BLOUSE. IT IS A SEPARATE PIECE AND NOT PART OF THE BLOUSE I AM WEARING.
Above my Moschino polka blouse is more interesting with a geometric collar by Ruth Eads Co. My CHANEL clip on earrings ( sim here ) lend a golden hue to my face and the pink embellished sunnies ( sim here ) add personality to this outfit as well as sun protection. The lace trimmed skirt is 3 years old and a summer staple. See similar ones here and here. This beige crocodile bag is vintage by now, I bought it 10 years ago as a custom-made piece at a designer resale shop. Similar here.
I wore pink CHANEL SANDALS TO FINALLY CELEBRATE OPEN TOE SEASON! It’s bow detail is a sweet one, yes? The gold hardware on the bag is nicely done. I love this second hang bag, bought in pristine condition from Encore. You know my penchant for both handbags and ladylike style. You also know my passion for supporting artisans so you will be glad to know my collar is made by a very talented female entrepreneur, , Stacey at Ruth Eads.
Head to toe, the whole outfit below. My Summer Fun style is all about comfort and good details.
You will see future posts featuring the statement collar in other cool patterns. You also know I love statement collars when they are bejeweled! Just glance at this post for a not-so-subtle reminder! Okay perhaps you are too tired to look back, so below I will provide the photo for you ! The jeweled statement collar below is paired with velvet gloves and an Hermes Dress, bought at designer resale, for a holiday look.
Adding a statement collar is a fun style tip.
Disclosure ** I received several pieces of Ruth Eads Co. collars and ties for review. My view is honest and all opinions are my own.
YOU can imagine I love this extra styling element. Whether embellished with jewels or beautifully crafted from fabric, a statement collar is a nice detail that I hope you will explore and enjoy.
I hope you are enjoying the holiday weekend , for those of my readers in the US. Currently, I am in the Hamptons finishing my house renovation. My family enjoyed two beautiful days and now it is raining and windy. Despite all of that, ( renovating can be a bit of a nightmare !) it is great to be in this serene place with my loved ones.
Below the view from my sister’s house. I will leave you with this picturesque image and wishes for a great long weekend.
